Anyone Watched The Series 'StartUp' On Netflix?
There are two different shows named Startup. One is Start-up, the other is StartUp. I am referring to StartUp, the one that starts off with the girl creating a cryptocurrency and then it evolves into a dark web type company.

It took me about 3 weeks to finish. It is 3 seasons, the episodes around around 40 or so minutes.

I think it was first on Crackle, but evidently Netflix bought it from them.. The first season was in 2016.

Its a pretty good series to watch for anyone looking for anything new. Things happen pretty fast and its constant

If anyone has watched it, I am just curious what you thought of it.

This gritty drama follows unlikely tech entrepreneurs behind a brilliant idea, and a powerful FBI agent ("Sherlock" star Martin Freeman) who can make or break those he comes in contact with -- not always for the right reasons. Set in Miami, Izzy Morales creates a revolutionary, unregulated digital currency called GenCoin. A young banker named Andy decides to partner with Izzy, infusing the project with cash that Andy's father is desperate to conceal. The trio ends up on the radar of FBI Financial Crimes Agent Phil Rask, who is on Andy's trail.


Seems to have the elements of a good show.. I'll give it a watch.

Just finished it this week. I really enjoyed it. It's a pretty creative story imo.

I've been watching. Probably about 6 episodes in. Honestly it's losing my interest but I'll at least finish the first season

I finished season 1. Not sure if I’m going to continue. Do they just continue stepping on their dick and getting screwed over? I’d rather not watch another 15+ hours of that if it’s the case.

I finished it on Wednesday night. I was ready for it to be over. I enjoyed all of the characters except for Izzy. The acting and dialogue were VERY cringey at times.

The first season was definitely the best, and the second was solid. The 3rd just felt to drag. Overall a solid show, but I lost a ton of interest by the middle of the third season.

Loved season 1
Really enjoyed season 2 but definitely a step back.
Season 3 is dragging

I'm on season 3 right now.

Adam Brody is pretty good and Edi Gathegi is phenomenal. Agreed on Izzy, she's the weak link of the show.

There's something off about Mira Sorvino. Her whole affect and voice is just weird. She doesn't move her lips when she speaks and is just awkward.

All in all it's a decent series, but I'm ready to be done with it.

They kind of drag it out too long before "the big reveal." I thought it was a solid season though after watching all of it.

SPOILER ALERT FOR THOSE WHO PLAN ON WATCHING STOP READING THIS POST NOW.

I didn't understand her character. I understand the point of the character, but I am talking about how there seemed to be something off about her. Was she supposed to be "on the spectrum"? Like when she ate, she had the same thing and then she would lay out her food in a certain way.

I was waiting for that to connect to something.

And I do agree that season 3 was the worst of the 3. It seemed like they were not sure which direction to go in. As if they wasn't sure whether or not they should leave the door open for another season.

I’m pissed they are not making a season 4. Especially with the ending of season 3

Is it absolutely confirmed they won’t be though? This was a Crackle series that Netflix took on and it soared to a popular top 10 series. Still is I think.

I understood it to be still in evaluation by Netflix for them to take it on and make additional seasons.

Would be a real drag to end it with that final scene.

Season 1- great
Season 2- good
Season 3- horrible

Was fast-forwarding through long sections of 3. Pitiful meaningless ending that solved nothing.

Finished all three seasons. Loved Robbie’s character and surprised I’d never heard of this show.

Hope they do a season 4, despite the 3-4 yr delay
